What People Say About Dr. Donna Newsome, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had Dr. Newsome a horrible experience with her. The medication she prescribed for me caused me to become very ill and i was hospitalized multiple times. She did not seem to care. She did not listen to anything I had to say, she only listened to my parents. She’d make me sit in the hallway for 45 minutes, while she spoke to my parents and only spoke to me for ten minutes. She refused to believe anything I said and quickly dismissed me. She also refused to collaborate with my therapist.

She prescribed an ADHD medication to my child. The medication prescribed, exacerbates other issues, which were made known to her beforehand. The medication made a low concern issue seriously chronic, leading my child into multiple MHU visits in one year, which could have possibly been avoided. Later brought to my attention, by unrelated medical staff, the medication has this reputation within the general medical community. She is reckless with complex cases and doesn't want them. Look elsewhere.
